At Sherrard High School, the staff members want only what is best for their students. During this difficult pandemic, staff members have stepped up in many ways. When our school transferred to remote learning, teachers posted assignments and held online video chats to ensure every student knew what they were doing. I recently had something sent to me in the mail that one of my teachers sent to me. In the envelope, I received a bracelet that says "positive" in the middle. I did an assignment focusing on the word positive, but making a bracelet and handwritten note after the school year was over just showed that the teachers actually care. Besides the fact that our teachers are always here for the students, our school focuses primarily on the education given to the students. Our school wants to see everyone excel academically and in athletics. At many of the athletic meets and games you will see all sorts of staff members supporting the Tigers! Sherrard really cares.

The schools a decent establishment with kind teachers and hard working staff. Some times though i felt like the discipline at this school was pretty bad. Students could get away with anything, more so it felt like. They tried their best, but some teachers are pushovers, and others don't care. Not all are bad, just some seem to either ignore, feed into, or hardly try to stop students from becoming bad students. They were more strict with the dress code then they were with student cursing out teachers, and walking out. There was no respect it seemed. I love my school, and only want it to become better which is why I have to say this. My personal experience, it was a nice school for people that enjoy tight communities, but a bad school for kids that don't play by the rules.
The education itself was very good. The teachers were helpful and make sure you know what you are doing and work hard to keep the students caught up. There is however, a bullying issue happening throughout the students that doesn't seem to be helped by the school. There is a lot of resources for the students however that is helped and used by the community. There is recent technology being used by the students and faculty. There is a wide variety of sports, clubs, and activities for students to participate in. There is an officer that patrols the school to keep us safe. There is art and music programs although not as funded as sports, they are still quite encouraging of the arts. The school often involves parents in programs to help the students and make them feel part of their child's education.
